m unemployed and have been for a long time, and constantly trapped in
my head by obessive bad thoughts. And I
lack motivation and social skills. Should I take the
Lexapro? I'm so scared of side effects. I take .5mg Xanax as needed but it doesn't scare me as much because I keep hearing horror stories about ssri's. I also have heart palpitations and have to take a beta blocker for those. My docs tell me to take the Lexapro. Should I? Has it helped free anyone else from anxiety?
